Sunken duck boat raised after fatal accident Missouri

BRANSON, missouri. – The U. S. Coast Guard says the plan is a duck ship that sank in the south from the Missouri during powerful winds, killing 17 people.

The work to recover from the Ride the Ducks boat from Table Rock Lake is scheduled to begin 9 a.m. Monday. The boat went Thursday evening in the Branson area after a storm generated near-hurricane force of wind. The boat is immersed in 80 feet (24 meters) of water.

Divers are expected to swim down to the tank and connect it to a crane, which lifts it to the surface.

Divers have already recovered from a digital recorder of the boat. The National Transportation Safety Board and the U. S. Coast Guard hope the recorder will help in their investigation into why the boat sank.
